Sanders fundraises for congresswomen targeted in Trump tweets



Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) asked supporters on Monday to donate to four progressive congresswomen targeted by President Trump in a series of tweets telling them to “go back” to other countries.

“When I call Donald Trump a racist, this is what I’m talking about,” Sanders said in a text message to supporters, referring to Trump's tweets directed at Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). All four are U.S. citizens and all but Omar were born in the U.S.

“Please split a contribution between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and our campaign for president,” the donation page reads. “Your contribution will send a message that Trump’s racism will not stand."

(snip)

Sanders tweeted a link to the fundraiser around the same time that the four held a press conference responding to Trump’s tweets, in which Omar said the “blatantly racist” attack demonstrated “the agenda of white nationalists.”

Taking a cut ruins the effect.

12. Let's see other candidates stand up and do this.

 

It shows a stronger commitment to anti-racist politics than just words.
